    Your hung up over the word "made" v.s "assembled" and if your looking for the kudos then let me be the first to say congratulations on pointing it out. I don't quite understand why people take nit picking to such a level as "made" and "assembled" have been interchangeably used in modern language industry context. Worth fighting over? I clearly new the difference when I purchased mine and it is important to me to buy American "owned, assembled, forged, fabricated, built, engineered, etc... (pick the word)" to the best of my ability when I have a choice. Trying to keep fellow Americans on the job.

    It is also interesting on how defensive people are when I encourage them to support American products in what ever way they can. As a consumer, I have only the choice of my purchases as power to send a message to industry that I want American made. I exercise it to the best of my ability and encourage other fellow Americans to do the same. I also respect your freedom to buy any product you wish.

    Thank you for buying a US assembled product of a US owned corporation! Hate to see you get mad and leave TBN. Your taking this stuff way to personal if you do. It's not worth upsetting yourself over.

    Mad, no, I don't get mad anymore, life is too short to waste it on getting mad. I'm sitting here smiling from ear to ear.

    Hi guys,

    Sorry I'm late to the party. I have a 2012 5085M pretty much fully loaded with the H260 loader and the suspension. The suspension is amazing and definitely worth the cost in my opinion. Makes driving with a heavy load so much nicer and much less stress on the front end. I pretty much never turn it off, so if I was to do it again, I would not bother getting the electro-mechanic solenoid on/off switch.

    As for the 260 vs 310 loader, I agree the 260 is plenty for this tractor. I started out with just weights on the wheels, and had to be very careful. In fact, I was not really able to carry a full load down any type of incline without the rears coming off the ground. I have since added 2000 lbs of rim guard to the rears. The 260 has plenty of lift. Check out these pics:
